Throughout Colorado Rockies franchise history, a total of 76 numbers have been worn by players.
Even though the Colorado Rockies are one of MLB’s youngest franchises, they have had their fair share of numbers be worn by players. In fact, every number between 0 and 68 has been worn and a handful of players have worn numbers in the 70s, 80s, and 90s.
For this list (and the future installments), we will be consulting the uniform list that Baseball-Reference has on their site for the Rockies as well as Baseball Almanac, as there are some discrepancies between the two. For some of them there are some really good battles and for some (as you will see in a moment), there’s really no battle whatsoever.
Let’s get into them.
Number 0- Adam Ottavino
This is one that is not a battle whatsoever. Why? Adam Ottavino is the first and, thus far, only Colorado Rockies player that has ever worn the number.
He spent part of seven seasons with the Rockies and he pitched to a 17-18 record with an ERA of 3.41 in 361 games, all in relief. He had a 10.4:3.8 strikeout to walk ratio. His strikeout and walk rate increased later in his career with the Rockies as in his last three seasons, it was 12:4.7.
He also is one of, if not, the best waiver claims that the Rockies have made in their franchise history.
